APPEAL FOR HELP HOMES— Both temporary and permanent homes are urgently needed. If you can offer a home to a cat please get in touch, or if you know people who you think would be good cat servants, please ask them to contact us.
FUNDRAISING—We need people to organise fund raising events for us. Bag packs, Table Quizzes, Coffee mornings, etc. We need new ideas that will appeal to young people. Does anybody have con- tacts with schools, especially Transition Year?
HOME VISITS AND TRANSPORT— Volunteers are needed to do home visits to prospective adopters, especially on the north side of Dublin and the inner city, also to bring cats to and from vets. We need people who are enthusiastic, energetic, willing to work as part of a team and willing to ‘stick with it’ when the going gets tough. If this is you, please get in touch and spread the word. We would love to hear from you.
DONATIONS— Every cent that we receive goes directly to benefit the cats.
€5 would help to buy food for a new born kitten.
€10 would enable us to purchase a new bed for an abandoned cat.
€25 would feed a cat or kitten for a whole month. €65 would pay for the initial vet checks and vaccinations a cat needs.
€75 would help towards the cost of neutering/ spaying.
If you donate €250 or more per year to Cats’ Aid we can claim a tax refund (at no extra cost to you) —please contact us for the relevant forms. If you donate €20 per month perhaps you would consider increasing that to €21, which would enable us to claim the tax refund.
Please watch out for our collection boxes in vets; all donations welcomed. We also welcome donations of cat food . Please phone or email & we will try to arrange collection. You can also pay for some food in the following vets—they will keep it for us. Lis- senhall Vets Swords, Ark Vets Deansgrange, Vil- lage Vets Stillorgan and Dundrum and O’Dwyer and Jones Vets, Maynooth.
We will take coins at our fund-raising events and we will also take stamps. (These must have a border of at least 1cm all round.)
RAFFLE—We hope to hold a major raffle later this year and we need some new/unused items for priz- es. Do you know any businesses that might sponsor vouchers – meals in restaurants, beauty treatments, for example.
